Solicitor in Netherlee


The ways in which you pay for a lawyer have changed significantly in recent years. This page will show you how much you might expect to pay and what your options are in finding a solicitor in Netherlee to take your claim forward.

Legal aid

The first important change came in 1998 when the government removed legal aid from the majority of personal injury cases. This meant that anyone considering making a claim was then obliged to pay their own way which naturally had some looking anxiously at their bank balances.


There are ways around this. Some firms ask you to take our insurance against losing your case. This means that if you do not win then the fees are paid by the insurer.

Other firms come up with something that they call no win no fee* – and we’re one of them. The notion behind no win no fee* is that if you lose your case for any reason, then your lawyer will automatically waive their fees.

This means that the interests of you as the client and your lawyer suddenly become very closely entwined. Because they will only get paid if you win you can expect a certain degree of effort to be devoted on their part to making sure that happens. Equally they will provide more reliable advice. They’re not, for example, going to suggest you launch a claim with little prospect of success as that would harm them as much as you.

Success fees

However, if you do win your case, then there will be money to be paid. Recently there were further changes which meant that lawyers could not claim their success fees from the other side which means these will come from your pocket. This normally happens by taking a slice from the compensation sum which is regarded as quite a painless and invisible way to take the money. The extent of this can vary significantly so make sure you know what’s coming before you start.
